Community & Living
As the Town Council, we are responsible for managing a number of Services.
You can use the links above or find out more about what we manage below.
Allotments – the town council has provided allotments on an out of town site at Trowan.
Grants – the council has an annual grants fund which is awarded to local organisations, community events, etc
Dog control orders – in response to calls for controls of dogs on a number of beaches and a footpath in the St Ives civil parish. Cornwall Council manages the Dog Control Orders, with the aim of striking a balance for the various beach users.
Seagull advice – not a statutory duty of the council, but in view of complaints from residents and visitors, the town council has compiled a seagull advice leaflet which may be downloaded.
Tourist information – the town council runs the St Ives Library & Information Service – based in the Library. This is a valued service used by visitors to the town and residents alike. Tourist information, accommodation bookings, ticket sales, books, maps and souvenirs – well worth a visit when in St Ives!
Weddings – The Guildhall is licensed as a civil ceremony venue and so weddings can be held in the Concert Hall, Council Chamber, Balcony Room or Mayors Parlour.
